Jamesport house description
My home is located one house from our private deck overlooking Peconic Bay. This spring (2013) we rebuilt and greatly enlarged the deck providing a comfortable sitting area steps above the shallow waters of the bay. The expanded deck area now provides plenty of room for picnicing and lounging by the water.
This immaculate four bedroom (two upstairs and two on the first floor)home sleeps ten plus (Linens included) a perfect two family rental. Recent renovations include two new full baths (extra deep tubs), and brand new fully equipped kitchen/dining area, plus full central air conditioning.
The family room which can be closed off for noise control has a TV/VCR and wireless access. The living room has a wood burning fireplace and TV/VCR/DVD and Ipod station. During July and August Cablevision Family channels are provided. The basement offers the convenience of a washer and dryer.
A large deck attached to the back of the house encourages outside dining while overlooking a lovingly landscaped half acre, designed for privacy. All of the gardens come alive with flowers in the spring. Hidden among the trees is a delightful hot outside shower and changing area. A Viking gas grill is available for your cooking needs. The play house, with bunks and electricity, is a favorite with visiting children. They will also spend hours circling the 'Grandchild Path' which is hidden among the landscaping for their delight..
Jamesport is located in the heart of Long Island Wine Country. We are walking distance to tennis, basketball, the marina, Jamesport public beach, boat ramp, and play ground. A wagon is provided for transport of chairs and coolers to the public beach. Vineyards and Antique shops are plentiful in the immediate area and recreational activities such as golf, the aquarium, and outlet shopping. Greenport fishing and boating are all an easy car ride away. Local restaurants are outstanding.
Everything about this home says 'Welcome!' From the stencilled walls, to the hanging bird houses, to the fully stocked book shelves... and comfortable furnishings.
You will find anything that you might need in the way of pots and pans in the kitchen. Linens are included (but not beach towels.) Electric is included to an amount agreed upon at the start of the rental. You are expected to leave the house as you found it upon arrival.
Pictures are worth a thousand words! Email me and I will forward you my shutterfly album. I guarantee that you will be interested. I will also gladly forward recommendations from former guests at your request.

What a great place. The house is situated near all needed things(grocery, gas, shopping etc.). The Peconic Bay water is awesome. The beach as others have mentioned goes away at high tide but we didn't find it an issue. The grade of the shoreline is great for small children. The property is so well kept and the path between the fence and hedges made for great hide and seek for the children. Kids unable to sleep in bunk house because of age but often played back there. Lorna was great. I would recommend this property and especially the owner. She was incredible to us.

great for a girls weekend
great for a girls weekend
I was among a group of 10 women who stayed for a weekend at this house. We had a great time—the place was very comfortable for this number of people. It was especially nice to have a kitchen area with which to work & then the large table in the sunroom for dining. The kitchen does not have a dishwasher which was not at all a problem for us, but maybe good to know if you are traveling with a few kids. The deck is beautiful and big enough for some to have mimosas at the table while others did yoga in the open area. The gardens/yard are well kept and impressive—any plant lovers will instantly appreciate the work given to this property and there is ample (protected) space for kids to play (including an adorable play house that we all agreed would be a dream if we were 20 years younger). The dock was also a great place to congregate & we were thrilled at the variety of shells, crabs and sea life. When the tide comes in it covers the beach entirely but this wasn't a problem at all—just something to know about the location. The town beach is just a short walk or drive away if you want more beach area than is available at the house. We were centrally located to visit many wineries & the Jamesport area has a great pastoral feel. Working with Lorna was easy and pleasant, I would highly recommend this home to anyone.

Owner response: Hi Kate, I just became aware of the lovely review that you wrote about my home. Thank you so much for kind words. Hope to see you all again some day. Lorna
House had it all. We had no problem sleeping 10 adults and 6 grandchildren. Bed rooms were large enough for kids to sleep with parents. They were to young to sleep in the buck house but they enjoyed playing in it. The house had plenty of seating for meals. The yard was large with plenty of room for yard games. The water front deck was used from sun up, all day and stargazing at night. The beach was clean, the water calm and the gradual increase in depth meant no worries with small children. We launched our boat about a 1/2 mile up the road and moored it in the shallows near the house. Our kayaks and one man rubber boats kept the kids playing in the water. The beach was perfect at low tide but covered at high tide. We could still sit in beach chairs soaking our feet. We found good take out, live lobsters, wineries, bagels and supermarkets all minutes away. The outdoor hot/cold shower kept the kids from tracking sand in to the house and was great for rinsing off after a swim. It was the home you dream of owning. We live on Long Island and had never thought of renting there, but the little commute made it so great.

Great Family House for a weekend getaway
Great Family House for a weekend getaway
This was a great weekend house for families. We had my in laws and my wife and toddler. A decade ago we were big fans of fire island specifically Fair Harbor. This house reminds us of being there, but it is so much easier logistically. Three things you need to know: Better than I expected based on the pictures Private Beach - You are really so close to the ocean and a big plus with a two year old Outdoor space is really well done I would recommend this as a good weekend getaway and owner is very easy to work with as well.

Year Purchased: 1973
About the owner: We bought this house twice!!!!! The first ten years of ownership began in 1973 and ended in 1983 with the purchase of a home in Nassau Co. In 1988 we had an opportunity to rediscover the joys of summer on the No Fork when the owners decided to sell. My four daughters are grown now and three are living on the West Coast. Sadly I realize that it is again time for me to sell the house. It will go on the market around March 15th ($650,000)
